"He's like an angsty, sadistic teenager with lots of mooks." - Roughly quoted from Cosma, from Darkness. Edward Derwent is the main villian of Steampunk, and one of the most powerful men in the world. He invented the jet engine, and made Renee and Gemma Schneider into immortal assassin cyborgs. He killed Sybilla and John Cresswell by burning down their family home, because Peter Cresswell "killed" Derwent's ex-wife Loretta. He held out an epic and ultimately pointless vendetta against Thomas Cresswell until recently.
